"This very flavorful roast is appropriate for any special occasion. The marinade in this recipe tenderizes the roast and the leftovers make fantastic sandwiches." — William Anatooskin

prime rib roast

I served this for Christmas Eve dinner. I didn't have any fresh ginger, so I used a tsp. ground ginger. It turned out wonderful. I poured the pan drippings through a metal sieve to remove the marmalade (and other) chunks, then mixed it with a package of instant gravy mix and the gravy was incredible too. My husband said this was the best prime rib he has ever tasted! My in-laws really seemed to enjoy it. My son, who was tired and cranky that evening, refused to eat everything else on his plate, but he ate all his meat!! I have never made roast beef before, but this recipe was really easy and very, very good.
Made this for Christmas dinner. It was the only disappointment of the evening. I believe this could be very good if used on a less-expensive cut of meat. As it was, not enough of the original meat flavors came through; the marinade was too strong.
Having lost my Father this past July, I knew it would be my job to take on the Christmas dinner. I found this recipe and the rest is history. All 23 people were amazed at how wonderful this roast tasted. My Dad would of been so proud of me..:) Thanks!
I made a couple small changes to this recipe, just due to what I had at home. Frozen OJ concentrate instead of marmalade, chili oil instead of pepper sauce, and white wine instead of beer. This roast recipe is FANTASTIC! Even my 2 year old annihilated it. I added some halved new red potatoes and thick sliced carrots the last half hour, sprinkled with a little rosemary. I was hoping for next day lunch leftovers, but there weren't any. DEFINATELY making this part of our monthly menu. =)
The amount of liquid this recipe adds to the baking pan was not enough in my oven. It began to burn before the roast was done. I suggested adding all of the marinade and a half of cup of water to the pan.
I prepared this recipe for my parents on Thanksgiving and was very impressed with the outcome. This was the first time I was responsible for our Holiday Dinner, and I was somewhat nervous about the results. This turned out great! ***The only change I would recommend is either lessen the amount of time in the oven OR lower the over temperature.*** I was hoping for MedRare, but got Med-MedWell.
What a bizarre combination for a marinade. I have served it for the past two x-mas dinners. Absolutely excellent.
This is a fabulous recipe and the marinade that cooks with the roast makes for outstanding gravy. I wanted something a little different for a prime rib special dinner and this one got raves from kids and adults alike! Definitely will do again.
